Placed atop a sepia-toned ground of sienna, ochre and reddish-brown, two figures populate the picture plane. The cool teal of the left figure’s clothes, mirrored in the shadows of the right figure’s portfolio, compliment the warm tones of the painting beautifully. This is one of the last paintings that Fox created, just prior to his death in 2008.
